  • Woods cruises into New York in his $20m yacht ahead of US Open

Tiger Woods has been grouped with the top two players in the world rankings for the first two rounds of his return to the US Open next week.

The American rivals will head to the first tee at 6:47pm (BST) on Thursday along with Woods, who has not played in the second major of the year since he suffered a humiliating early exit at Chambers Bay three years ago. Nordegren turned down the yacht in the divorce proceedings and Woods initially sought to sell it.

Since returning to the PGA Tour in December of previous year, Woods has climbed his way back up the FedEx Cup rankings to 50th in the world.

The goal of Norman AI is to demonstrate that artificial intelligence can not be unfair and biased unless such data is fed into it. Artificial intelligence can be helpful for us, but things can go really wrong if such machines access certain types of data.

Woods's 155-foot, $20 million yacht is docked at the Montauk Yacht Club and he's planning to stay there during next week's tournament, according to Page Six.

The yacht, named "Privacy", is docked at Gurney's Yacht Club in Montauk, a luxury resort roughly 26 miles east of Shinnecock Hills. She apparently made numerous interior design choices for the sleek vessel, like the dark cherry wood, marble and leather furniture. There's plenty of amenities on board like a Jacuzzi, theater and a gym all available to pass the time.

Woods will stay on the boat next week, as he prepares for and plays in the Open. The area around Shinnecock Hills on the eastern end of Long Island is full of lovely rental homes and beachside hotels.
